Xiamen's Art District of Tomorrow
Xiamen's local government is developing an old fishing port (pictured) to be a trendy art district. The city plans to keep the local history and culture, and is also building a replica of a merchant fishing ship used during ancient times. You can currently find a few galleries and cafes in the area. Now is a good time to visit—before the changes are completed—while you can still see local life and edgier art.
